Lady Cove Women’s Choir
Founded in 2003 by Kellie Walsh, Lady Cove Women’s Choir was named after the remote community of Lady Cove on Newfoundland’s rugged yet beautiful east coast. The name Lady Cove is representative of the spirit and philosophy of the Choir: a community – a haven where woman-identified members come, not only to explore their own musicianship, but to share their lives and experiences in a sisterhood.
Our mission is to reveal the strength, versatility, creativity, and beauty of women’s choral music; to expand the repertoire for women’s voices by commissioning and reviving works; to provide talented and dedicated woman-identified musicians with exceptional musical and interpersonal experiences; and, to actively contribute to the ongoing evolution of culture in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Lady Cove Women’s Choir is a highly respected member of a vibrant and diverse arts community, both in Newfoundland and Labrador and across Canada. Lady Cove’s programming spans a wide variety of musical genres including renaissance, gospel, traditional, world, jazz, contemporary choral theatre, and classical music – and the choir strives to strike a delicate balance between performing and sharing accessible works, with creating new musical experiences that challenge both audiences and choir members alike.
